reportedly referenced violence but the f.b.i. launched a full investigation. now one of the most decorated military leaders in our history has been removed as the head the c.i.a. essentially he has been silenced days before he was scheduled to testify before congressional investigators. even more concerning, all of this unfolded before the election but we, you, were not told about until president obama was declared victorious. speaking of the white house they are peddling the farfetched story that the president wasn't informed about the petraeus affair until after the election day. >> this investigation has been going on for months. how is it that the white house didn't have any idea of this until the day the election and congress a few days later? >> i would refer you to the f.b.i. they have, as i understand it, protocols in place when they notify the legislative executive branches of the investigations. it is simply a fact that the white house was not aware of the situation regarding general petraeus until wednesdaythe sitl allen, friday. >> sean: so the f.b.i. knew about the investigati
to know who changed these talking points, and here with more on that, the author of the secrets of the fbi, chief washington correspondent for newsmax.com ronald kessler is back along with the former assistant secretary of defense, bing west is here with us as well. this is very frustrating to me because i feel we've been lied to. here we have this event happen, almost instantaneously petraeus knows what happened. the libyan president told us within a day what had happened. people on the ground told us what had happened. the state department watched in real-time. five days after, susan rice didn't know what happened and two weeks later the president couldn't say definitively it was a terrorist attack. is that plausible? >> shawn, there's no reason to have the argument in a way because every day the president is given a daily brief by the cia, so all one has to do in one of these intelligence committees is say well, let me see the brief that the president received on those days. it's either going to be in there or it's not. the problem when the white house doesn't want to even reveal what w
hours, where apparently the acting director of the cia told the senators that it was the fbi that changed the talking points, that removed the reference to al-qaeda, and he had a reason for it in the meeting. he said it was because they didn't want to hurt an ongoing criminal investigation, and now later today the cia came out and said, well, he misspoke. so it's now the fourth or fifth iteration of who changed the talking points, which isn't something that happens when you're actually telling the truth. >> sean: this is the problem susan rice has and the white house has, is if david petraeus knew instantly, and charlie lamb says that the state department was watching this in real time, and they were getting reports on the ground, calls for help to the cia annex, and the libyan president, all of these things happened within 24 hours, there's no justification at all to go blame a youtube video. if their explanation is, well, we didn't want to jump the gun, then they couldn't jump the gun on that excuse either. so that doesn't fly. >> right. >> i'm not surprised by what they sa
are in search of solution to a problem. >> would that be of interest in the f.b.i.? >> sean: welcome to that to a special edition. that was movie called district of corruption. we'll be showing you clips throughout the hour tonight and current administration was supposed to be most transparent in history. it's turned out to be anything but the. now, we have another four years to look forward. so can we anticipate corruption until 2016. joining me is director of the film steve banan and president of judicial watch and film's producer. tom finten. >> explain what we saw in that clip? >> i wanted to make a film, i think washington is an imperial city. it's been detached from the american people. i wanted to show how it happened. how this corruption, how this happened over the last 20 years and particularly how it's culminated in the obama administration. every administration runs to be the most transparent administration. >> sean: they are full of it? >> clinton and bush and obama, each time they run because the american people want transparency and open and a government that is not in
